Sandy Forbes litigates complex employment matters. Appearing before courts and administrative agencies, she represents clients in cases arising under federal and state employment statutes and laws, advising them on issues of discrimination and harassment, wrongful termination, and wage and hour disputes. She also handles restrictive covenant, breach of contract, and confidential information and trade secret matters.
With the goal of avoiding costly and distracting disputes, Sandy helps clients develop effective policies and procedures to keep them in compliance with rules and regulations. She educates employers on their rights and obligations in employee relations and human resources issues, and counsels workers who suffer damages due to unlawful employer practices.
Previously, Sandy served clients involved in employee litigation matters at a Newark, New Jersey firm, and later in a large Tucson firm. Additionally, Sandy worked as a solo practitioner for several years before joining our firm in 2008.
